By the way, I used Twitter since early 2007, shortly after it launched. Not even in the early days there was anything like this on Twitter.
It was refreshing at the time, compared to the things that were available. But there never was anything like the effervescent passion for creative cross-pollination and delightfully libertine thinking that happens on Mastodon as a matter of course.

Mastodon is nothing like Twitter, Mastodon is what Twitter should have been.

I like many things about Masto. But what I like most is that out-of-the-box, left-brain things happen often here. Like stumbling upon someone who understands a relatively obscure French film from 1996 based on an even more obscure 1916 French film, a guy who builds supercomputers as a hobby, a subculture that publishes poetry using the long-deceased, now-revived Gopher system.
And I could go on with the whimsical, and the unbounded creativity that emerges when the profit motive is removed.

Cullen and Fried reference Licklider, but not Engelbart. I guess Licklider was first to think of the 'on-line' concept?

Literally every time I register for an academic conference I have to email the organisers to request that the 'title' field of the registration form doesn't force women to declare their marital status, or non-binary people to pick a gender.

"without close attention to how to construct new structures, aspiration is unlikely to be translated into effective workable systems."

I do like how Ostrom's views could be used as a different tack to organising in socialism. Locally focused but also recognises need for institutional superstructures. However, these made through rules and constitutions of diverse groups, not ideology and party apparatus.

Dunno if it's reformist or revolutionary tho yet. Probs reformist.

@h @nightpool @bob I share your concerns. Which is why this machine-capability of automatically understanding other ontologies would need to be democratized. That way, the "embrace, extend, extinguish" would not work as those caught on the outside would be able to survive with each other, along with the new budding ontologies.

As for why I think this: I believe when everyone has an independent machine learning computer its biases will just be a reflection of their own.

the tragedy of linked data, or of ontology, is isomorphic to the two ancient science fictional maxims:

- All laws are local
- No law knows how local it is

@clacke This is why I think the formal methods industry and research communities have it all wrong. They should not be looking to make their systems tighter (this is always a good thing to do regardless), but rather they need to be making their contributions more approachable to knuckle-dragging grunts in the field like me.

R&D into type systems falls into this latter category, which is why Haskell monads and Rust's ownership ideas are ground-breaking. We need more of *this*, and less of Z.

If you think you can bend the world to your will with tech, consider that the leading government to embrace the invention of anarcho-libertarian Satoshi Nakomoto is socialist-authoritarian Venezuela.
